Here is a card i made using the Spiced cider papers from Stampin up. I saw the pattern for the card on splitcoast stampers. I made the flower using the scallop circle punch, I just curled them over to make funnels then stuck them to a circle base. The card base is sage shadow and I have used very vanilla grosgrain ribbon.

Friends Scrapbook page

I have finally done some scrapbooking, it seems like such a long time since I did a layout I really enjoyed it and the page only took me minutes to make once I had cut all the flowers out.

We are having another quiet day today, well I am, the girls are going somewhere with Pete. I think I am coming down with something yucky as everything is aching especially my throat so I will be taking it easy.

Have a good Sunday.

I finally finished making my book about our local scarecrow festival. I have used Heidi Grace papers to make this because I just love the fresh feel that they have.

Diddy little gift box.

Hi all,
Have you had loads of snow today?
We didn't get hardly any at all, I was really hoping for loads of snow even though it is a bit silly hoping for cold weather when the heating system has broken down. It has been sooo cold here today that I felt like a medieval reenactor living in a open windowed castle Lol. We should be back up and running tomorrow (Oh the luxury of warm rooms) it has certainly made me think about all the people who are on the streets at this time of year, I will defo find where our nearest homeless shelter is and take them a couple of bags of food now and then. I kept busy all day to take my mind off the cold and made this little gift box. I have used the Vellum cardstock, its the first time I've used it and it is lovely. I scalloped the edges using the new fiskars punch that I got from capture the magic this week, then inked the edges with rose red and wrapped a piece of taffeta ribbon in choc chip. The Rollo's have now all gone so i will have to find something else to put in it Lol.
